Representatives of Delta Dental of New Jersey visited the Dental Center at Overlook for a first-hand look at the four new, state-of-the-art equipment operatories purchased with their $70,000 grant to the Overlook Foundation. Through such generous support, the Overlook dental team can now offer greater access to essential dental services to some 3,000 patients annually, as well as oral health screenings and education to another 3,000 local residents.
The Overlook Foundation embarked on a fundraising initiative in 2016 to replace the dental center’s outdated equipment in order to address the critical oral health care challenges in the community, specifically for the underserved population with a focus on children, seniors, veterans, and the developmentally disabled.
“Overlook does an amazing job helping families access the dental care they need to stay healthy,” commented Dennis Wilson (center), president and chief executive officer, Delta Dental of New Jersey. Also on hand for the visit were Kerry Mowry, director of corporate and foundation relations, Overlook Foundation; Dona Wilson, philanthropist; Clelia Biamonti, executive director, Overlook Foundation; Brian Silverman, DMD, director, Dental Center at Overlook; Alan Lieber, president, Overlook Medical Center; and Melanie Miller, manager, Dental Center at Overlook.
